Blue for motorways in the UK and green for other roads. Thats the same in Hungary and Poland too.

I think the signs in the UK look quite similar to the signs in Germany.

As in France. (The equivalent of primary routes being the so-called réseau vert - green network.)

Anyone knows about Freeways (Expressways) in Vietnam? Is the blue shown for Freeways or for normal roads?

Most of western Europe use blue ones. That doesn't make them look simular. Does a blue BMW 5 series look simular to a blue Fiat Ceicento?

Even Iran's Freeway signs are blue and normal roads are green!

What's the road disclipine like in Iran? One might be forgiven to think that's complete anarchy?

Iran has 80,000 km of roads. 65,000 km are paved and there is 1,800 km of Freeways in Iran. The road signs for Freeways are blue and they are numbered 1, 2, 5, 7 and 9. There are also a few unnumbered freeways.National roads in Iran use green signage and they are numbered from 11 to 99. odd numbers for NS roads increasing from west to east and even numbers are for EW roads increasing from north to south. Iran also has lots of Expressways. Some of them are part of National Roads and some others are part of Municipalities. They also use green signs. Iran also has secondary roads which have 3-digit numbers but they are not marked frequently in the country.

This is the official colouring scheme for direction signs in Hungary:



Road numbers and settlement names are fictional (ok, M9 exists in reality), unfortunately I couldn't find a bigger image.
